Sérgio Santos Mendes (born February 11, 1941 in Niterói, Brazil) is a Grammy Award-winning Brazilian musician.

Though his early singles with Brasil '66 (most notably "Mas Que Nada") met with some success, Mendes really burst into mainstream prominence when he performed the Oscar nominated Burt Bacharach/Hal David song "The Look of Love" on the Academy Awards telecast in April 1968.

He is also known for his disco composition "I'll Tell You" (1978).
